My 8-year-old son has been running around with one of our digital cameras lately. He’s shooting photos of random objects, brothers, sisters, friends. And the floor sometimes. This photo was taken while he as supposed to be in a time out in his room. Clearly he found a way to keep himself busy.
I exported the files from that camera today and saw a world that is unfamiliar to me. The photos were all from a perspective I can’t see. Everything was a bit skewed. There are photos of people who appear to be larger than they are and images taken at angles I would never think to use. And images shot through window screens.
What strikes me is that I could us a bit more of this childlike perspective in my life.
